Monochromatic in Teal

Banana Republic teal outfitHello Ladies

You know I am a fan of jewel tones. What I wanted to do was to create a monochrome look with additional complementary color and texture.

Just a short post, showing how one can take a monochromatic look and add texture to create a bit of a diversion  The tights with the brown pattern, the stained-glass looking earrings, and the brown tweed does just enough to keep the eye interested. Plus, did I mention I like teal?

      Thank you Mark, I appreciate the lovely comment. It is actualy a top and skirt, but could pass as a dress. Glad you like the acessories, love vintage brooches.
